Lemon Grilled Chicken

I found this grilled chicken recipe over at the Sister’s Cafe smack dab in the middle of winter. They posted several drool inducing recipes that they used with it, but said it was also great right off the grill. I have been dying for warm weather so we could give it a try. I was all set to make it the first warm weekend that we had. Pulled out all the ingredients, and then discovered to my horror that we were out of chicken. I almost cried.

Let me just note that I thought we had an entire 40# box of chicken in the basement freezer. Turns out that one of my boys, upon taking out the last bag, closed up the box. I have been storing an empty cardboard box in my freezer for over a month. (Insert your favorite swear word here.)
For the next two weeks, every time we planned on grilling, it rained. I thought I would never be able to try this recipe! But finally the stars finally aligned and we were able to partake. Oh. . . my. . .goodness. I am soooo glad. We loved this chicken!!! The lemon gives it a fresh flavor and makes it nice and tender. The oregano is subtle but yummy. We had it straight off the grill, but I can’t wait to try it in pesto, and salad, and on pizza. . . So many possibilities.You should really try this. I can’t wait till I get to try it again. Definitely a winner!
